Made in Michigan, Shop for the Holidays: Michigan Jazz Suite
When the Paul Keller Orchestra let loose at the annual Sleeping Bear Dune Climb concert last summer the audience knew it was a match made in heaven: big dunes, big blue July sky, big brassy sounds of this Ann Arbor jazz band. Proof that Paul Keller loves the North right back is in the Michigan Jazz Suite, a CD Keller composed and recorded with his orchestra. Tunes like Big Mac, Crooked Tree, Cherry Jubilee and Sleeping Bear get top billing on this one for your next cross-state road trip. $20. pkorecords.com.
